Killin' em dead

The US General Accounting Office, as quoted by Manufacturing & Technology News (See: U.S. Ammo Industry Can’t Keep Up, Sept. 1, 05), has calculated that since the invasion of Iraq in 2003, US forces have discharged more than 1.8 billion rounds of 5.56 mm ammunition. If US estimates regarding the size of the insurgency are accurate, approx. 20,000, that figure would equal 90,000 rounds per insurgent.
